Do you know that game when, after eating your Chinese food, you open up your fortune cookie and read it, then add “in bed” to the end of it? My most recent one? “Hard work will get you wherever you want to go…in bed.” Hmm. I don’t know if I want my funtimes between the sheets to sound quite so like a career.
My most recent way to amuse my tiny little mind is to add “in spaaaaace” to various pronouncements. For example: “Yes, darling, I’d love for you to take me out to lunch…in spaaaaace.” Yeah, I did say I had a tiny mind, didn’t I? The husband and kids are hoping this phase passes quite soon, though they do remember the many months it took them to break me of the habit of saying “I will exterminate you” in a Dalek voice.
Back to the pirates and bounty hunters. Mako’s Bounty, my most recent science fiction romance, released from Decadent Publishing last week. Here’s the blurb:
For nine long months, at the behest of the evil Ravenscorp, Mako Dolan has been hunting the space pirate they call The Saint. Now she’s finally lured her prey to a one night stand with a mysterious woman—herself. But Vin Sainte is not at all what she expected. Far from being a ruthless space pirate, his main occupation seems to be rescuing nuns, adopting orphans and praying like a champ.
For nine long months Vin Sainte has been fleeing the bounty hunter from one temporary refuge to the next. Now he’s got Mako exactly where he wants her: weak from gravity sickness and ripe for conversion. Problem is he didn’t expect a foul-mouthed, hard-as-nails bounty hunter to be such a devoted daughter. His head on a platter is Ravenscorp’s price for her mother’s freedom.
They have less than twenty four hours. One will win; one will lose. Mako might be a fearsome predator, but Vin has the Lord on his side. Who will win the bounty?
I’m happy to give away a pdf copy of Mako’s Bounty to a reader of this blog. Just leave a comment. And don’t forget to add “in bed” or “in space” to your comment. I know, I know, I know. I’m a goofball.
